My Bloodhound puppy got bitten by a Diamondback this evening while out walking, and is having to stay at the vet's tonight. Luckily it only happened 5-10 minutes before I saw the swelling, but the vet is an hour away from us. Last summer my old Bloodhound and my Lab mix got bitten in our yard one night. It seems like I just can't win I took Penny for snake-proofing a couple of months ago, and she was due to have a rattlesnake vaccine on Friday. Please keep her in your prayers, she means so much to us.
